July 20, 2016, Eatontown, NJ – Yorktel today announced that Aragon Research has named Yorktel a Hot Vendor for 2016 in Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C). As the worldwide leader in cloud, UC&C and video managed services, Yorktel has served as the trusted partner to Fortune 1,000 and federal government agencies for over 30 years.
Each year, Aragon Research selects Hot Vendors across multiple markets that are doing something truly new or different. They may have new technology that expands capabilities, a new strategy that opens up markets, or just a new way of doing business that makes them worth evaluating.
“Today, it is an imperative for UC&C providers to be able to offer voice, video, and mobile messaging as key capabilities, but the problem is that UC&C integration challenges can be complex,” said Jim Lundy, CEO and lead analyst, Aragon Research. “Companies such as Yorktel are helping to address these challenges.”
Residing within the existing Yorktel VideoCloud™, Univago supports a variety of deployment architectures and offers various services, such as its Enterprise Gateway service which enables calling between Microsoft Skype for Business and all other platforms operating on standards supported by Univago. An always-available, subscription-based solution, Univago allows customers to control costs and scale at their own pace, avoiding capacity concerns and alleviating them from the burden of capital expenditures in hardware that will soon be obsolete.
Live support from Yorktel’s 24/7 helpdesk is included with all subscriptions, whereas other providers charge a premium for similar support.
“We are honored to receive such high praise from Aragon Research, an esteemed team of industry leaders,” said John Vitale, senior vice president of product management, Yorktel. “Univago was built specifically for today’s businesses, and validation from highly-regarded, independent third parties like Aragon Research is incredibly rewarding.”
